Records of Toxorhynchites rutilus septentrionalis findings in New York State are few, and collections north of New York City are rare. This is the 1st official documentation of Tx. rutilus found in upstate New York in the past 46 years and the farthest northern record. In 2002, immatures of Tx. rutilus were found in artificial containers in 2 locations in the Hudson Valley region, at Quarryville (Ulster County) and Blauvelt (Rockland County), NY. A study conducted at Quarryville in 2002 and 2003 found that breeding occurred continuously through the season, and that overwintering possibly could be occurring at that site.
